AUSTRAL COAL: Centennial Extends Bid Again
------------------------------------------
Centennial Coal has again extended its offer for rival Austral
Coal, according to The Advertiser.

In a notice lodged with the Australian Stock Exchange, the firm
on Friday said it would extend the offer until June 24.

Centennial, one of NSW biggest coal miners, now holds 85.38
percent of Austral. The miner launched its friendly takeover of
Austral on March 2, and gained control of the firm on April 7.

But Centennial's bid for full ownership was thwarted in April,
when Glencore took a 14 percent stake in Austral.

EMPEROR MINES: DRD Pledges Constant Support
-------------------------------------------
South African firm DRD Gold has affirmed it will continue its
financial and management support for ailing Emperor Mines, The
Australian says.

DRD might not decide to make another takeover bid for Emperor
after failing to win full control of the Australian firm, DRD
said it will help sort out the serious problems at Emperor's
Vatukoula mine.

Emperor managing director Mark Wellesley-Wood, 75 percent of
whose salary is paid by DRD, confirmed DRD is not walking away.
He also declared that he will carry on as a part-time director
for Emperor since the firm still cannot afford to hire a full-
time CEO.

Emperor has forecast an AU$18 million loss for the year ending
this month, as the company has been hit by high oil prices and
growing absenteeism among its Fijian workforce, as well as
equipment failures.

The Company has also abandoned plans to mine 800,000 tonnes of
ore for a year for 180,000 ounces (oz.) of gold. Instead, it
will target high-grade ore only, mining 650,000 tonnes to
produce 145,000 oz.

Emperor has also asked the Fijian Government to suspend its 3
percent gold tax until oil falls below US$40 a barrel.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Fears SingAir's Secret Agenda
---------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways is concerned that Singapore Airlines' (SingAir)
plans to enter the lucrative Sydney to Los Angeles route could
be part of a long-term strategy by the Asian carrier to drive
Qantas out of business, says the Sydney Morning Herald.

With Federal Cabinet expected to make a decisions as early as
this week on whether to grant Singapore Air access to the route,
Qantas voiced its concern about the growing influence of
government-owned airlines like SingAir and Dubai's Emirates.

"They would like to see the back of Qantas and take this market
for themselves, with the consequent loss of the 38,000 jobs in
Australia that we've got," Qantas chief financial officer Peter
Gregg.

According to Mr. Gress, the public needed to note that the
"uneven" advantages Singapore Air had over Qantas, such as its
lower corporate taxes, lower labor costs and the effect
government-owned foreign airlines could have on the Australian
aviation sector if they were granted more access to Australian
routes.

In response to a report commissioned by Singapore Air which
claimed the lack of competition on the US air route was costing
Australia $126 million a year in lost tourist revenue, Mr. Gregg
said: "For them to come and address one route in our network as
being of paramount importance to them when we provide so many
other routes to network Australia to the rest of the world is a
question that needs to be considered."

"Why is that so? It's so because they believe they can produce a
higher return. It's called cherry picking."

Claiming largely government-owned carriers such as Singapore Air
did not have the pressure to return high levels of dividends to
shareholders, Mr. Gregg said: "They drop their return with the
sole aim of driving commercial airlines out of business."

Singapore Air spokesman Stephen Foreshaw said Qantas's comments
were "sounding increasingly desperate".

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Offshoot Hits Turbulence in Asia
------------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways has recently failed to give any clear assurances
on how long it will continue to back its struggling Singapore
offshoot, Jetstar Asia, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Qantas admitted it is still struggling to recover its investment
in Jetstar, despite the carrier in Singapore having managed to
lease out four of its unused Airbus 320s.

Qantas chief financial officer Peter Gregg said Jetstar's
performance had improved amid growing speculation that Qantas
and other major shareholders could soon dissolve the loss-making
airlines.

Jetstar's problems reportedly stemmed from its inability to gain
access to crucial markets such as Indonesia and China.

Jetstar was only given certificates to land between three and
four aircraft. It was to have eight aircraft in its fleet by
November but, thanks to traffic restrictions, it has been forced
to lease four of the Airbus A320s to the Turkish carrier
AtlasJet.

Mr. Gregg also highlighted Jetstar Asia's woes as evidence of a
lack of balance in Singapore Airlines' argument for wanting to
gain access to the lucrative Sydney to Los Angeles route.

The airline's other investors include the Singapore Government's
investment company Temasek Holdings, which is Singapore
Airlines' major shareholder.

SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT: Radio Staff to Remain Out-of-Pocket
---------------------------------------------------------
The radio personalities of the failed Sports Entertainment
Network (SEN) are most unlikely to get paid, as creditors
claimed they cannot guarantee the station will survive, reports
the Herald Sun.

The first creditors' meeting told management companies who
represent the station's high-profile talents that there is
simply no money to pay its staff for the past three months.

Several personalities and production staff haven't been paid for
the past three months and won't be able to get any compensation.

But it is understood that some employees, including celebrities
like Billy Brownless and Tim Watson, have assured to stick with
the station.

Experienced Sydney radio administrator George Bushman has been
brought in to oversee operations and to advise new owner Pacific
Star where it can save money and which presenters it should
keep.

The six-figure sums that the radio celebrities earn will be
revised and are expected to be scaled down once Bushman's review
is completed.

SEN has reportedly generated around AU$3.5 million in revenue
this financial year, while the failed Adelaide operation brought
in AU$350,000. But outgoings have totaled about AU$7 million,
delivering a loss across the two operations of AU$3 million.

SEN was placed in receivership last month and its Adelaide
operation has been shut down.

Creditors are set to meet at the end of the month.

WESTBUS: Seeing Light at the End of Tunnel
------------------------------------------
Cash-strapped Westbus is seeing a clearer future as the Carr
Government steps up effort to regulate private bus operators,
according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Transport Ministry was authorized to call the shots at 800
private bus companies around NSW under a new surprise
legislation tabled June 8.

The so-called "step-in" laws pave the way for the Director
General of Transport to run a bus company for up to a year to
ensure services are maintained in times of financial or
contractual strife.

The introduction of the Bill follows a string of conflicts with
private bus companies over contract negotiations.

Westbus went into voluntary administration with debts of AU$90
million in February after failing to renegotiate a loan.

WINEORB: Irate Investors Block Liquidator
-----------------------------------------
The liquidator of failed investment fund WineOrb has been
prevented by some 100 disgruntled investors from issuing a court
order to get ownership of 162,500 bottles of fine wine, The
Australian says.

Peter Ngan has asked investors to grant him a "pooling" order
that would have given him, as liquidator, ownership of the AU$8-
million worth of wine.

But creditors opted to block Mr. Ngan's proposal after a fiery
meeting amid claims of insolvent trading by WineOrb directors,
vanishing wine stocks, wine being sold twice over and a dearth
of company records. Instead, they voted for Mr. Ngan to apply to
the NSW Supreme Court for a deadline for all claims for wine to
be submitted against the failed fine wine merchant.

In a meeting last week, which was attended by around 7000
investors, Mr. Ngan declared Wineorb had paid a total of about
AU$11 million for premium wines, many of which had since gone
missing. WineOrb stored the wine on their behalf, for a fee,
with a view to selling it for a profit in the future.

"The records are in a very poor state," Mr. Ngan said. "There
were no records of sales and the company's records were so bad,
so unreliable, that we had to reconstruct a lot of things on a
piecemeal basis."

He conceded that he and co-liquidator Greg Park of Ngan & Co had
huge problems reconciling ownership of the wine. He also claimed
there were many other discrepancies.

WineOrb collapsed in January this year, leaving premium wine in
storage facilities in Sydney and Melbourne. The rival sales
group from which Wine Orb was spawned, Heritage Fine Wines, went
under administration weeks later, leaving AU$60 million of
vintage elite Australian brands stranded in warehouses.

WMC RESOURCES: BHP Adds More Stake
----------------------------------
BHP Billiton has again raised its stake in takeover target WMC
Resources to 81.16 percent, The Australian relates.

BHP Billiton has extended its AU$9.2 billion offer to June 17
and has urged WMC shareholders to accept the AU$7.85 per share
on offer.

The Company has said it plans to gain a 90 percent stake in WMC,
which would allow it to compulsorily acquire the remaining
shares.

BHP Billiton has wasted no time making its mark at WMC Resources
after winning majority control of the miner.

WMC Chief Executive Andrew Michelmore was one of the first of
more than 200 planned redundancies. BHP this week appointed
Chris Campbell as interim CEO at WMC, while BHP Executive
Director Mike Salamon was named WMC Chairman and Business
Performance Manager Brendan Rudd was made interim chief
financial officer.

WMC mining operations staff will be retained, but BHP says it is
aiming to sack up to 230 workers from WMC's corporate division,
which is about a third of the staff, as it merges the new
acquisition into its own operations.

About 330 corporate positions would be relocated from WMC's
Melbourne headquarters closer to the mine assets relevant to
their jobs, although it would be up to the individual worker to
decide whether to move.

GARUDA INDONESIA: Challenged to Make Profit by 2007
---------------------------------------------------
Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has dared
troubled airline PT Garuda Indonesia's president director to
make the firm profitable within two years, Antara News reports.

The challenge was issued after Pres. Yudhoyono launched a
government program to revive Indonesia's agricultural, fishery
and forestry industry, and a fishery businesswoman complained
that the cost of exporting her merchandise to Europe was too
high.

Garuda Indonesia suffered a whopping net loss of IDR600 billion
last year. At present, it has an IDR8 billion debt.

Pres. Yudhoyono addressed other financially troubled state-owned
companies to take up the challenge, saying it would be better to
liquidate the firms if the losses were to continue.

The president said his administration will fight the social
disease of collusion, corruption and nepotism, which is
affecting air, land and sea transportation rates.

PERTAMINA: Government Refuses to Participate in Cepu Row Talks
--------------------------------------------------------------
The House of Representatives has said that it has no plans to
get involved in the ongoing negotiations between PT Pertamina
and ExxonMobil to settle a long-standing dispute on the
development of oil reserves in Cepu, reports the Jakarta Post.

A special negotiating team comprised of Pertamina and government
officials had been formed last week to speed up negotiations
between the two firms.

According to Mr. Agusman Effendi, chairman of the House's
Commission VII for energy and mineral resources, the house just
wants to know who the team represents, since it was not clear
whether the team would act for Pertamina or the government.

Mr. Effendi said that the House merely wants to make sure that
all parties involved benefit from the negotiations, and ensure a
speedy conclusion so as to increase the country's fuel output.

Negotiations between the special team and ExxonMobil reached a
climax when the House (of Representatives) said it would oppose
any result from the talks, saying that the formation of the team
was "questionable".

Vice President Kalla said that legislators should not interfere
with negotiations, as the process was "part of the government's
domain."

U.s. firm ExxonMobil was awarded a contract by Pertamina to
develop oil reserves in a gas block in Cepu, and wanted to
extend its contract beyond 2010 when it discovered an additional
250 million barrels of oil reserves. Pertamina refused to extend
the contract based on legislators' opposition and a strike from
workers of a Pertamina unit.

In exchange for an extension of the contract, the government is
offering a 15% stake in the contractor-allocation split, which
is being discussed by ExxonMobil and PT Pertamina.

PERTAMINA: Receives IDR4 Trillion in Fuel Subsidy
-------------------------------------------------
PT Pertamina received IDR4 trillion from the Indonesian
government last week to cover fuel imports and local fuel
supply, the Jakarta Post reports.

Company President Mustiko Saleh said the fuel subsidy was
disbursed on June 10. But despite the latest disbursement, the
firm said it still needed to borrow money for the Company's
activities.

The oil and gas firm must ensure that local fuel supply is
sufficient for 20 days. At present, domestic fuel stock is good
for 18 days, while the ideal supply should last 22 days.

Company Finance Director Alfred Rohimone said that the Company
is seeking to borrow as much as IDR4.8 trillion to import oil
from abroad. Pertamina imports 300,000 barrels of crude oil
daily for processing in its refineries.  Presently, the Company
needs IDR10.5 trillion to cover its fuel imports of 1.15 million
barrels per day in order to provide enough fuel supply
nationwide.

With the temporary shutdown of an oil refinery in Dumai, and the
rejection of its letters of credit by several banks, Pertamina
is in a tight position. The government, however, has agreed to
help the Company by disbursing IDR1.2 trillion monthly for oil
imports.


PERTAMINA: Inks Exclusive Rights Deal with LNG
----------------------------------------------
PT Pertamina and PT Medco E&P Tomori Sulawesi, owners of a gas
field in Senoro, Sulawesi, have signed an exclusivity agreement
with Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Limited, for exclusive rights
to 800 billion cubic feet of gas, reports Indoexchange News.

In the agreement, both firms will provide a daily supply of 120
million cubic feet of gas to LNG Ltd. for the next 20 years to
be used in LNG's production plant, with an annual production
capacity of 700,000 tons of LNG.

The exclusivity agreement would allow PT Pertamina and PT Medco
to engage in sales contracts and a definitive gas supply
agreement with LNG Ltd. However, the agreement is still pending
the approval of state Oil & Gas Upstream Regulatory Agency (BP
Migas).

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Ups Domestic Sales in 2004
---------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) increased its new vehicle
sales figures in Japan last year by selling about 10 percent to
dealers instead of consumers, Japan Times reports.

The scandal-ridden carmaker managed to clear its domestic sales
target of 220,000 in fiscal 2004 by selling about 227,000
vehicles. But nearly 20,000 of them are believed to have been
purchased by affiliated dealers, the sources said, raising the
possibility the sales target was not truly achieved.

A MMC spokesman denied the allegation.

The carmaker has been trying to restore customer confidence by
offering free checkups to owners of Mitsubishi vehicles after a
spate of recalls last year damaged its image.

NAGOYA RAILROAD: JCR Assigns BBB+ Rating
----------------------------------------
Japan Credit Rating Agency (JCR) has assigned a BBB+ rating to
the bonds to be issued under the shelf registration of Nagoya
Railroad Co. Limited.

Issue Amount (bn): Issue Date Due Date Coupon
JPY bonds no.34 JPY15 June 24, 2005 June 22, 2012 1.12%

Covenants: Negative Pledge
Commissioned Company: No
Shelf Registration: Maximum Valid
Y50 billion two years effective from August 6, 2004

RATIONALE:

Nagoya Railroad increased the pretax profit before extraordinary
items year-on-year for 6 years in a row with the progress of
restructuring for the group companies centering on leisure,
distribution and bus businesses. The leisure service business,
which had long been incurring operating loss, turned into the
black for the last fiscal year thanks to cost reductions and
shift of the operations from the parent to the group companies.
JCR considers that Nagoya Railroad has now almost completed its
financial restructuring process, given the one-time large
restructuring charges for the related businesses for fiscal 2002
and write-offs of fixed assets made in fiscal 2004.

Nagoya Railroad has achieved the numerical target for cutback on
the interest-bearing debt under the new mid-term management plan
ahead of schedule. With the capital spending related to Chubu
International Airport being dwindled, its financial structure is
expected to improve further. Issue for Nagoya Railroad is its
finishing up the restructuring for the group businesses during a
time in which the effects of railway line to the airport opened
in January this year persist.

------------------------------------------------------
The Industrial Revitalization Committee of the Industrial
Revitalization Corporation of Japan (IRCJ) approved the receipt
of repayment in full for debt the IRCJ had purchased from
financial institutions as part of a business revitalization plan
for Tamano Consultants Co., Ltd. and associated companies
(Tamano Consultants).

The payment received by the IRCJ means that it no longer holds
any debt or other obligations of Tamano Consultants.

1. Name of company concerned
Tamano Consultants Co., Ltd.
Tamano Toshi Kaihatsu Co., Ltd.

2. Process to date

On December 24, 2004 the IRCJ approved an application for
assistance by Tamano Consultants under Article 22, Clause 3 of
the Industrial Revitalization Corporation Act of 2003. On
February 14, 2005, under Article 25, Clause 1 of the same act,
the IRCJ reached agreement with financial institutions on the
purchase of this company's debts.

On March 29, 2005, in accordance with the revitalization plan, a
capital increase was implemented through a third party
allocation of shares to sponsor Nippon Koei Co., Ltd., as a
result of which Tamano Consultants became a subsidiary of that
company. The business revitalization of Tamano Consultants is
continuing with the support of the sponsor.

3. Amount of debt

The principal value of Tamano Consultants' debt was 4,027
million. The IRCJ paid financial institutions JPY890 million for

through the sale of collateral assets, etc. In accordance with
the business revitalization plan, JPY2,280 million of the
principal value of the debt was handled in a debt forgiveness
scheme.

The payment of JPY937 million received today means that the
amount of Tamano Consultants' debt owing to the IRCJ has now
been paid in full.

CHOHUNG BANK: 15 Employees Face Sanctions for Embezzlement
----------------------------------------------------------
The South Korean antitrust watchdog, Financial Supervisory
Service (FSS), decided to sanction 15 executives and employees
of Chohung Bank who were allegedly involved in an embezzlement
scamfrom November 2004 to March 2005, the Korea Times reports.

Chohung Bank filed a report last April against one of its
officials surnamed Kim, for allegedly embezzling KRW40 billion
in bank funds, investing the money in futures and options in a
securities house account under his own name and that of family
members. The 31-year-old official opened an account in another
bank under his sister's name, where he transferred up to KRW7
billion on 16 separate occasions.

The FSS had sent an investigation team to the bank and the
securities house to determine the alleged investment.

The supervisory agency also held a meeting to issue disciplinary
actions against five officials and ten employees of the bank,
together with 13 other management and lower-level employees who
were also deemed accountable.

Chohung Bank's president Choi Dong-soo and standing auditor Yoo
Jee-hong are also to be sanctioned for failure to prevent the
scam. The Financial Supervisory Commission is set to make a
final decision (on the disciplinary measures) on June 24.

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: S&P Assigns 'B+' Rating
--------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned a 'B+' rating to
South Korean chipmaker Hynix Semiconductor Inc.'s (B+/Stable/--)
proposed Floating Rate Senior Notes due 2012, and Senior Notes
due 2015. The size of the issuances is expected to total USD750
million (KRW756.8 billion). The ratings on the senior unsecured
debt are subject to final documentation.

"The rating on Hynix reflects positive expectations for the
normalization of the company's operations following the early
end to the workout plan, in addition to its greatly improved
debt maturity profile upon refinancing of bank debt. Also, Hynix
has a solid position in the dynamic random access memory (DRAM)
industry and a good cost position," said Standard & Poor's
analyst Eun Jin Kim.

"However, these strengths are offset by the semiconductor
industry's extremely challenging operating environment:
specifically, the notoriously cyclical and capital-intensive
nature of the industry and severe pricing pressures,
particularly on commodity-like products like DRAM, from which
Hynix derives the bulk of its revenues," Ms. Kim added.

The highly cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry has
lead to volatile profitability and considerable fluctuations in
Hynix's credit protection measures. During the industry upturn
in 2004, the Company recorded exceptionally strong earnings,
with a parent-only EBITDA margin of 48.7% and return on capital
of 31.5%. Total debt to EBITDA also recorded a strong 0.6x. But
prior to 2003, Hynix recorded operating losses for three
consecutive years. As some softening in average selling prices
is expected this year, profitability margins and debt coverage
should see some deterioration. Margins will face further
pressures once operations normalize and sales, general &
administrative expenses rise to more reasonable levels.

Total debt stood at KRW1.8 trillion at the end of March 31,
2005 on a parent-only basis, of which almost KRWW1.7 trillion is
restructured debt, which was set to mature in the fourth quarter
of fiscal 2006 under the workout plan. Standard & Poor's assumes
that Hynix will be able to refinance the restructured debt
within the next six months. The newly issued debt and secured
bank loans are expected to have a tenor of five or more years,
thus significantly improving the Company's maturity schedule.

Aktif Lifestyle Corporation Berhad announced that the Company's
external auditors, Messrs Ernst & Young, issued a qualification

financial year ended Feb. 29, 2004.

According to Messrs Ernst & Young, the Company's financial

payable to a former ALS shareholder.

The auditors have not obtained enough evidence to support the
appropriateness of this particular write back.

Shareholders of the Company dated 2 June 2005, which had been
attached together with the reissued financial statements for the
year ended 29 February 2004 was released to Bursa Securities on

BENPRES HOLDINGS: Mulls Disposal of Stakes in 3 Subsidiaries
------------------------------------------------------------
Debt-ridden Benpres Holdings Inc. is looking to reap at least
Php3 billion from the sale of its assets, Today News reports.

The holding firm said it will dispose of its stake in three
subsidiaries such as the Manila North Tollways Corporation
(MNTC), the Medical City and Bayantel Communications.

But Benpres president Angel Ong said that the firm can only sell
a third of its 67-percent holdings in MNTC within the next six
months to a year.

Four multinational firms, including Metro Pacific, have
reportedly signified their interest in Benpres' stake in MNTC.
The sale is expected to be completed within six months to one
year. Benpres expects to gain from its US$51-million investment
in the toll operator.

The MNTC was given the concession to maintain and finance the 84
kilometer-long North Luzon Expressway, which at US$371 million
is considered the biggest toll-road project in the country.

Meanwhile, a local telecommunications network hinted on plans to
buy Bayantel. Bayantel has been reportedly in talks with the
Philippine Long Distance and Telephone Co. (PLDT) a few years
back.

CAMP JOHN: Three Groups Eye Ecozone
-----------------------------------
Two local firms and a foreign group have submitted proposals to
replace Camp John Hay Development Corp. (CJHDevCo) as operator
of Camp John Hay economic zone, relates The Philippine Daily
Inquirer.

But the three unnamed groups would need to undergo a new bidding
process to take over the CJHDevCo lease.

The Bases Conversion Development Corp. (BCDA) had terminated
CJHDevco's lease on April 30,2005 for "material breach of
contract" over more than Php2 billion in unpaid rent and taxes.
The developer, however, asked a regional trial court on Thursday
last week to decide whether a Supreme Court ruling that
nullified its tax benefits compelled the firm to pay the
government all of its back taxes.

The developer had asked the court for declaratory relief so it
could address billions of pesos worth of back taxes imposed by
the Bureau of Customs.

The BIR relied on the High Court's March 29 resolution, which
affirmed with finality the invalidation of John Hay's tax
protection.

The Supreme Court ruled that only Congress could grant tax
benefits to new economic zones created by the BCDA. It voided
John Hay's tax incentives, which former President Fidel Ramos
had prescribed in Presidential Proclamation 420.

CJHDevco sued BCDA before the Philippine Dispute Resolution
Center, for Php10 billion in damages due to the flaws in RA
7227, which compelled the High Court to nullify John Hay's tax
benefits.

But BCDA last week formally declined to submit to arbitration,
saying no dispute existed because the lease termination was
based on CJHDevco's refusal to pay its rent.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: No New Funds May Prompt SEC Takeover
-------------------------------------------------------
The corporate regulator is likely to take College Assurance
Plans (Philippines) Inc. (CAP) under its care if the ailing pre-
need firm fails to boost its capital, The Manila Times reveals.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) said it may be
forced to take over CAP's operations, as recommended by the
agency's oversight committee.

CAP has stayed mum on the results of its issuance of an asset
safekeeping receipt (ASKR) to its Liechtenstein-based investor,
International Global Capital Holdings Inc. (IGCH). The ASKR,
which indicates that the asset under question remains with the
named company, was issued to secure CAP's Metro Rail Transit
bonds, allowing the pre-need firm to receive from US$12.5
million to US$25 million in additional funds from IGCH.

CAP is insisting the commission granted it 15 to 30 days after
the ASKR was issued to produce the additional capital. After
approving the issuance of the ASKR last month, the SEC expects
the additional capital to be infused into CAP by this week.

The commission has already received complaints from CAP plan
holders asking how their plans would work out given the slow
pace of developments.

The pre-need firm presently has a trust fund of Php4.7 billion,
well below the minimum level of Php8 billion.

GREENSQUARE PROPERTIES: SEC Imposes Fine, Revokes Permit
--------------------------------------------------------
Greensquare Properties Inc. has been ordered pay over Php6
million in fines for failure to comply with the corporate
regulator's requirements, according to BusinessWorld.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has directed the
firm, owned by businessman Romero Roxas, to pay the original
assessed penalty of Php6.04 million within 30 days from receipt
of the order.

The Philippine Star reported that the SEC earlier agreed to
lower the penalty to Php2 million, provided that Greensquare
would settle fines within five days from Jan. 24.

The firm had sought a reduction in the fine imposed by the SEC
in lieu of its plan to revive its planned initial public
offering (IPO).

But despite due notice and hearing Greensquare failed to submit
its revised prospectus and latest financial reports. The firm's
failure led to the imposition of the fines and the revocation of
its registration statement and certificate of permit to sell
securities.

Meanwhile, the firm and its sister company Green Circle, has
withdrawn their offer to invest in ailing pre-need firm College
Assurance Plans (Philippines) Inc. (CAP) due to the latter's
failure to renew its dealership license with the SEC.


NATIONAL POWER: Creditors Hold on to Masinloc
---------------------------------------------
Foreign creditors of National Power Corporation's (Napocor)
Php30.5-billion (US$560 million) Masinloc facility refuse to
release the plant to its new buyer, BusinessWorld relates.

The World Bank, Asian Development Bank and the Japan Bank are
hesitant to turn over the facility to Australia's YNN Pacific
Consortium Inc. The three major creditors doubt YNN's financial
standing and capability to make good its bed for Masinloc.

Masinloc's sale, which is expected to generate US$5561.7
million, has been previously criticized by lawmakers due to
questions of YNN's financial capacity.

But YNN defended that the bid was covered by a US$9-million
security, which the government could forfeit if YNN would fail
to post a US$11-million performance bond or pay the "upfront
fee" of about US$223 million (Php12.1 billion) upon the signing
of the contract.

The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp.
(PSALM), the state agency tasked to handle Napocor's assets
sale, said it would work to transfer to 600-megawatt Masinloc
plant by the end of the year with creditors' consent.

Under the agreement with YNN, the government has 270 days from
the bid award and effectively of sale agreement to obtain the
consent of Napocor creditors.

YNN won the bidding for the Masinloc plant on December 3, 2004,
and was formally awarded the sale contract on March 2005.

Masinloc was auctioned to YNN as a "merchant" plant, or without
any power supply contracts.

NATIONAL POWER: ADB Clears Position on Masinloc Sale
----------------------------------------------------
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has clarified it has no
particular position on the sale of the National Power
Corporation's (Napocor) Masinloc coal-fired power plant to
Australia's YNN Pacific Consortium, Inc., according to
BusinessWorld.

"We have not taken any position. We don't agree or disagree at
all because it is all the government's decision and
responsibility," ADB Director for Infrastructure Division of
Southeast Asia Department Patrick Giraud said.

Foreign creditors of state-run Napocor are reportedly
questioning YNN's financial capability to make good its US$561-
million bid for the plant. These creditors reportedly include
the World Bank, ADB, and the Japan Bank for International
Cooperation.

Mr. Giraud said the evaluation of the Masinloc sale would be
discussed in a board meeting in July.

"As of now, we are happy that the privatization is pushing
through, and that is ADB's concern as creditor to Napocor," he
said.


NITOKA INDUSTRIAL: Faces Smuggling, Tax Evasion Raps
----------------------------------------------------
Resin importer Nitoka Industrial Corp. is facing a smuggling
complaint and tax evasion suit by the government, Today News
reports.

The Department of Finance (DOF) and the Bureau if Internal
Revenue (BIR), which filed tax evasion charges against Nitoka in
May, has lodged another case against the Company for smuggling.

The two government agencies alleged that Nitoka used sister firm
Pine River International Corp. in smuggling resin.

Besides smuggling, the government said Pine River may also face
tax-evasion charges after it was discovered that the company
imported a substantial quantity of resins in 2002 and 2003,
without paying the necessary taxes. The Company, however, ceased
to operate in 2004.

Nitoka was also found to have imported substantial amount of
resins and similarly failed to declare and pay income taxes also
in 2002 and 2003.

In a Securities and Exchange Commission registration, Nitoka
declared that its main business is manufacturing, assembling and
reconditioning of industrial sewing-machine equipment and
machinery.

CHINA AVIATION (S): Former Chief Posts SG$2-Mln Bail
----------------------------------------------------
China Aviation Oil (Singapore) Corp. Ltd. chief executive was
temporarily released from jail after posting SG$2-million bail,
China Daily relates.

Chen Julin walked out of the Queenstown Remand Prison late
Friday and has gone home.  Mr. Chen is prohibited to leave the
country and is ordered to report to the police's white-collar
crime agency Commercial Affairs Department every weekday.

Mr. Chen was charged with 15 counts of cheating and forgery
following the release of PricewaterhouseCoopers findings. He was
also accused of conspiring with CAO's Singaporean finance head,
Peter Lim to cheat Deutsche Bank of more than $111 million, and
of forging the signature of CAO chairman Jia Changbin.

According to China Daily Mr. Chen was also with deliberately
omitting from CAO's financial statements the fact the firm had
racked up losses in derivatives trading, and with hiding the
truth from the board of directors.

CAO's collapse is considered the biggest scandal to hit
Singapore since the collapse of British Merchant Bank Barings in
1995 after Nick Leeson tried to hide over US$1 billion in losses
from derivatives trading.

DON MUANG: Debt-Restructuring Deal Hits Snag
--------------------------------------------
The THB10 billion debt-restructuring deal for Don Muang Tollway
Public Company Limited hits a roadblock after the Government
Savings Bank (GSB) refused to accept a write-down on its loans,
reports Bangkok Post.

GSB seeks for a clear directive from the Finance Ministry, which
oversees the GSB, if a write-down is to be accepted.  The
directive would have implications for the GSB.  The state bank
as a matter of policy does not accept debt write-downs.

Under a proposed debt-restructuring plan, creditors would accept
a "haircut" or write-down of 22% on the total debt and also
consider reductions in accrued interest of THB1.49 billion.
Details on the timing and scope of the reductions are still
being negotiated.

Don Muang outstanding loan to GSB amounts to THB3.94 billion.
Aside from GSB, banks like TMB Bank, Siam City Bank, Krung Thai
Bank, Siam Commercial Bank and BankThai also has an exposure to
Don Muang.

The government policy to have Don Muang Tollway reduce its fares
to encourage use of the route and thus ease traffic congestion
along Vibhandi Rangsit Road complicates the discussion.

Authorities want fares to be maintained at the current THB20 for
short trips and THB30 for the entire stretch for at least five
years, compared with previous tolls of THB43 to THB53. After
five years, tolls could be increased by another THB10, with Don
Muang Tollway also being granted an eight-year extension on its
concession under the restructuring plan.

Creditors and the Finance Ministry officials are planning to
meet Monday to finalize details of the plan.

In the event the restructuring plan would not be finalized, Don
Muang would most likely raise rates as permitted under its
concession and seek recourse through arbitration.

Previously, Don Muang has filed claims for THB15 billion in
damages, citing contract violations by the government in
building local roads to compete on the route, failure to
transfer land near Don Muang Airport and damages incurred
following state orders to cut fares to current rates.

Negotiators have also proposed to offer a possible upside gain
through an option to swap debt for equity as an incentive to
creditors to accept the restructuring.
